Storyline

Donald is heading out for a night on the town with Daisy, but first he needs to ditch his resourceful nephews. Easier said than done. They get to Daisy's house first, but Donald buys them off with ice cream, which works for about 10 seconds. Eventually, Donald and Daisy do some pretty wild dancing, made wilder when the nephews get a hot ear of popcorn into Donald. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

A great introduction for Miss Daisy Duck.
28 October 2001 | by (Alexandroupolis,Greece) – See all my reviews

This short is the first actual appearance of Daisy Duck because the earlier short Don Donald(1937) introduced a very different in appearance and voice Donna Duck.Donald is at his best in this film.He proves to be a fun-loving young man and he doesn't have to be jumping up and down to attract the audiences.He gets the most out of the situation in this one and at the end has earned Daisy's affection.Daisy proves to be a hell of a dancer and a seductive little devil.Her first role is actualy one of the best she ever had.The nephews need for attention ant their interest in Daisy is a good enough motivation for them.They prove themselves inventive and capable.This short has all five Ducks in one of their most interesting appearances ever.Worth watching.
